EDEN HAZARD returned to Real Madrid training yesterday after stunning Zinedine Zidane with his lockdown body transformation.
The Belgian was pictured back on the grass after impressing his boss with his physique last week.
Hazard was joined by several high profile Real Madrid teammates including Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and Sergio Ramos.
Having travelled to the training ground for a coronavirus test last Wednesday, Hazard – who was wearing a mask and gloves – was greeted by an impressed Zidane at the entrance to the multi-million-pound complex.
The 29-year-old has yet to live up to expectations in the Spanish capital since his £88million switch from Stamford Bridge almost a year ago.
He arrived at the club having admitted to putting on a stone before losing it all in ten days.
Hazard then battled with an ankle injury which required surgery in March, leaving his campaign and Euros in doubt.
But the coronavirus pandemic has meant he hasn't missed any matches while being given the chance to work on his fitness.
And it appears he has even managed to resist the temptation of indulging in his favourite treat.
While in lockdown, he said to RTBF: "It's complicated for me. I'm trying not to eat a lot.
"I'm trying not to go into the pantry to eat a lot of buns, but it's not easy."
According to AS, Zidane was more than impressed with Hazard's weight as he turned up to the club's training centre after lockdown measures were eased.
LaLiga wants players to train for at least a month before resuming with matches, to avoid issues with fitness and injuries.
Even then, games will go ahead behind closed doors – and could be well into 2021.
Hazard's team-mate Thibaut Courtois claimed the league postponement has helped his international compatriot get back to full fitness.
